Sat 7 Dec until Sat 20 Dec 2014

Reception Saturday 13 December 2014 2PM

The work in the show looks back at the past two decades of my art making. The primary focus is on the intricate yet intertwined relationship we have with nature. It also includes several works that feature architectural reliefs from buildings in St. Catharines.

The materials in the pieces include: clay, black & white photography, gum bichromate, cyanotype, oil pastels and mixed media.

INSPIRE ST. CATHARINES
Culture Plan 2020

The City of St. Catharines has a new draft culture plan and wants to hear from you before presenting it to city council.
 
The draft Culture Plan identifies the many cultural assets we enjoy and recommends culture-specific priorities to strengthen our future. The plan is designed to inform City decision makers when considering investments, programming, facilities and policies that affect the creative sector, our built heritage and our urban fabric. The Culture Plan connects the culture dots of our community with a fundamental goal to grow the “cultural vitality” of St. Catharines’ future.
 
Click here to read the new plan and complete the online survey. Follow StCathCulture on Facebook and Twitter as we share and discuss material from the plan.
 
Feedback from residents will be incorporated into the draft, which will be presented to City Council in early 2015. The online survey closes in early December.
